Tested 3rd-Party Plugins and Themes

Please Note: This wiki is valid for v2.9.x and below of the LiteSpeed Cache Plugin for WordPress. If you are using v3.0 or above, please see the new documentation.

This is a list of known popular plugins and themes that we have checked for compatibility. All of the products listed here have passed the test and are compatible with LSCache. If this list looks small, it is because we only test those plugins that have the potential to conflict with a cache solution.

Many of these plugins/themes now work with LSCWP right out of the box, but others require some action before they will work. Please note the Action Required column.

My Favorite Plugin Isn't Listed

It's impossible to list every plugin that is compatible with LiteSpeed Cache, so here is a rule of thumb:

If the plugin doesn’t generate site content, or do anything out of the ordinary with existing front-end content, then chances are it is 100% compatible with LiteSpeed Cache for WordPress. (The vast majority of plugins fall into this category.)

Still note sure? Consider these points:

  • LSCWP purges pages from the cache when certain events are triggered. If the plugin generates content that triggers those same events, then it's compatible in that area.
  • LSCWP follows a set of rules to determine whether a page is cacheable. If the plugin generates content that also abides by those same rules, then it's compatible in that area.
  • If the plugin uses a nonce, customization may be required. Here's an example.

If you still are unsure, we've written this guide to testing for compatibility so you can check for yourself.

If you have the skills, take a look at our API and make the plugin compatible yourself!
